Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Ann Padgett
Welcome to second grade at W.L. Swain Elementary School! My name is Ann Padgett. I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Education from Samford University in 1998. I then went on to earn my Master’s Degree in Administration and Supervision from Lincoln Memorial University in 2002, and my Specialist Degree in Administration and Supervision from Lincoln Memorial University in 2005. I am considered professionally qualified to teach children in grades Pre K – 8th grade. This will be my twentith year in the classroom and my eighteenth year with Gordon County Schools. I previously taught one year at Unity Christian School in Floyd County and one year at a Pre-K program in Rome.
I have been married for nineteen years to Trumon Padgett, Sr. We have four wonderful children; Emily is 18 and graduated last year from Gordon Central, Weston is 15 and is in tenth grade at Gordon Central, Olivia is 13 and is in eighth grade at Ashworth Middle, and Ella Grace is 8 and in third grade here at Swain. We are very proud of our children!
I look forward to working with your child and you this year at W.L. Swain, "Where Learning Shapes Extraordinary Students”. During this school year I will strive to create a classroom community that is positive and friendly. It is important to me that my students feel confident of their abilities and come to school prepared and excited about the new things they will learn each day. However, I realize that I cannot accomplish this on my own. Your involvement in your child’s education is KEY to his or her academic success. Therefore, please feel free to contact me at any time with concerns about your child’s education. You may send me a note, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, call me at 706-629-0141, or send a message through ClassDojo. I will respond as soon as possible. If you would like to meet with me please remember to schedule a conference, so that we may talk without interruption. I look forward to getting to know your child and you. Together, we can guide your child to become the best student and person he or she can be. We are going to have a wonderful, exciting year!
